Others are Captain Sunny Nwankwo, Hon. Bernard Mikko and Ibinabo Michael-West.
A source close to the PDP zonal secretariat in Port Harcourt, where the Ambassador Obed Wadzani-led screening panel sat, said that the governorship aspirants were disqualified based on allegations that they were not card-carrying members of the party.
Meanwhile, one of the disqualified governorship aspirants, Prince Tonye Princewill has alleged that his disqualification was the handiwork of the former minister of state for Education and governorship aspirant on the platform of the PDP, Chief Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike.
